What, Todd Oldham -- you're still not done giving these people their marching orders? "Bacardi LimÃ³n is an upscale brand, and they describe themselves as being 'sensorial,'" Todd says. They probably came up with that after other descriptions like "Tastes like chicken," "Like Sprite, only more inebriating," and "C'mon, drink up, rummy" didn't test nearly so well. The point, Todd says, is that the contestants will be judged on how well their party designs incorporate the five senses -- smell, taste, hearing, sight, and touch -- plus a sixth sense that Jonathan Adler will invent just before judging. Todd adds that Elle DÃ©cor has invited "a slew of Hollywood socialites" -- read: out-of-work extras and hangers-on -- and that the guests will vote on which party they like the best. Also, one member of the team with the winning design will be awarded with an extra hour in the next challenge. And this extra hour will be awarded based on... what exactly? Contributions to the winning design? Cleanliness? Posture? The first designer to shout out "I listen to Kevin and the Madman every morning on Rockin' 105FM?" On that score, Todd is uninformative. Anyhow, the two teams have $8,500 and their own 30-by-40-foot tent to make some party magic. Let's see Elton John operate under those parameters.
